Marcus Lindblom Spills Some EarthBound Secrets
There’s a new anime coming soon called “Aoi Sekai no Chuushin de” which apparently uses the old Nintendo and Sega rivalry of the 90s as the basis for a fantasy setting. Or something. It sounds a bit like that Hyperdimension Neptunia game.
Anyway, the characters are based off of various games from back then – you got your Mario Bros.-type characters, your Samus-type character… and even a MOTHER-themed character!
If you look in the bottom left corner of this pic, you can see the MOTHER-themed character “Masa” holding a Mr. Saturn:
In Japanese, “MOTHER” is pronounced a bit like, “Maza”, so that’s why this character is called “Masa”.
Looking through this pic, I can tell what most of these characters are supposed to be, but most of the top row is a mystery to me. Anyone got any ideas?
Thanks to The Great Morgil for the tip!
